Those tables have a very exclusive and unic vintage look , obtained after many special ,handmade process on all natural materials we use to realize them.
Those tops are made of travertine (slab ) and a mosaic of hand made terracotta tiles , natural or decorated in many different design and fixed on it.
This particular type of table top is suitable for use both indoors and outdoors: for prolonged outdoor use over the years, in order to guarantee the integrity of the original materials and colors, of both terracotta and travertine, it is mandatory to follow the treatment below.
All our table tops are treated with natural waxes and oils, applied with special tested procedures, in order to make them waterproof and protect the surface, and prevent absorbing any type of substance.
AVOID contact with the surface of the table top with corrosive, acidic or hot dishes: if this happened on the non-majolica part (natural terracotta and / or travertine part), stains could occur on the surface ; these stains can be eliminated but only with particular processes that we can carry out in the laboratory.
In order to preserve the beauty of the tops over time and maintain the technical characteristics of resistance and anything else described above, we advise to periodically (at least once a year, before the winter season) a simple maintenance treatment (washing and wax recovery); with each table top, we deliver a maintenance KIT, containing wax and an instruction sheet In winter, if not used, it is recommended to cover the surface of the same with a simple, waterproof cloth, and than you can leave it outside under the rainor snow with no problem.
